Jeffrey Truxell – Jeff has a long history with InVision and has been instrumental in several roles during his tenure with our organization.

Jeff has the skill and capacity to support anyone within the program and is a force behind the services we provide. He understands regulatory requirements and ensures he is always up to date before they become due. Jeff is valued beyond what words can express!
20 Years of Service
Erin Babilon – Erin began her tenure with InVision Human Services in June of 1998. Through the years, Erin has been instrumental in assisting hundreds of people establish, maintain, and live the life they want in their community. Erin has played many roles in the course of assisting people—stepping into the role of a counselor, an accountant, a cheerleader, a life coach, and most importantly, an advocate. Her ability to meet a person where they are while helping them also see the possibilities of where they could be is amazing! Erin is a gentle force that inspires simply by just being there. She is never one to give up even during the most challenging situations. If you asked her why she doesn’t give up, her response would likely be, “if I can’t see the potential for someone, how am I ever going to help them see it.” Erin adapts to each situation and is truly a role model.
25 Years of Service
Kenneth Rudek – Kenneth began his tenure with InVision Human Services in November of 1997. A professional was taking on a second job in a wraparound program. He would be working with a 9-year-old boy with an intellectual disability—little did the boy and his family know the lifelong impact this professional would have on their lives. 25 years later, Ken is still providing supports to this young man. The family, and InVision, will be continually grateful to Ken for ensuring this young man had and continues to have the opportunity to live his life of meaning in his community.
Thank you, InVision, for helping us celebrate the accomplishments of our team members! To all our recipients, nominees, and employees who consistently demonstrate leadership qualities while serving as organizational role models, we are sincerely grateful. You are all so greatly appreciated for your dedication to InVision, and the contributions you bring to our organization.
